(Except as otherwise noted, all interpretations in this astrological forecast are based on a natural chart, using the beginning of Aries as the ascendant, and except where noted otherwise, times listed are Pacific Time (UTC-8).

A “Void Moon” or “Void of Course Moon” (or “VOC moon” for short) makes no significant aspects until it enters the next sign. Its void period is thought to be a poor time for starting new projects or making concerted effort toward existing plans.

According to William Lilly, the Moon in Cancer (Moon’s rulership), Taurus (Moon’s exaltation), Sagittarius and Pisces (signs ruled by Jupiter, the Great Benefic) “performeth somewhat.” Lee Lehmann reports that she has tested this, and “you can take it to the bank.” Another way of putting how this works in an astrological forecast is that, when an action is taken during the void period in one of these signs, you get “unanswered success.” That is, the lack of planetary action prevents your action from being denied.


Daily Astrology Forecast, December 2017

Friday, December 1

Warrior Mars, which rules Uranus in Aries, also opposes that rebel planet, giving us a look at our impulse to push against restrictions, and our frustration about apparent whatever lack of progress we see in our efforts towards freedom. The frustration is likely a projection of our own reticence to act, as will become clearer throughout the weekend. Take a good look at the price you may be paying to stay in your comfort zone. Plan effective strategies.

Also from now through Sunday: Avoid extreme sports and fights and be extra-careful at the wheel, and while using knives, weapons and machinery. Apply diplomacy, patience, gentle persistence and avoid risks, substance abuse and rash or impulsive behavior.

Moon is exalted in Taurus and contacts Jupiter and Neptune, helping us dream, visualize, create and cultivate compassion. A path of satisfaction opens this afternoon, when Moon goes VOC on a trine to Pluto. Moon in the sign of the bull continues to perform and can help us ground healing intentions and make a positive connection with someone in a position of power.

Affirmation:
I envision the highest and the best, and apply my talents to design strategic pathways now.

Saturday, December 2

Moon in Taurus on a “2” day favors going to brunch with a significant other in beautiful surroundings. Moon makes a quincunxes to Mars the mover, Saturn the worker and Mercury the connector, generating low-degree tension that can be directed in tweaking a project, promotion or any practical endeavor involving others.

At 1:21 pm (4:21 pm ET), Moon enters Gemini, ruled by Mercury, just as the messenger planet stations to go fully retrograde. Mercury’s station is exact at 11:34 pm (1:34 am ET). At 29 Sagittarius, it triggers the anaratic final degree of a mutable sign, intensifying our intuition.

Moon’s opposition to Venus, planet of personal love, and a trine from expansive Jupiter to subtle Neptune, make for a mystical, magical afternoon that presages tomorrow’s Full Moon and is great for inner or creative work, connecting with light beings and angels, consulting a psychic, transmuting our beliefs, and altruistic activities.

Affirmation:
My life is a doorway to infinite good, and only good flows through it now.

Sunday, December 3

Today’s Full Moon is imbued with the expressive, creative energies of the number 3, and the mystical vibrations that were unleashed yesterday and continue to flow as Luna connects with Neptune and Jupiter, the angel planets.

Fullness is exact at 7:47 am (10:47 ET).

The Sabian symbol says:

A BLACK SLAVE GIRL DEMANDS HER RIGHTS OF HER MISTRESS. The will to rise above racial conditioning and limitations or a sense that one needs to conform to things as they are.

In the chart for this lunation, Fighter Mars in Libra, sign of justice, opposes Uranus. Besides the recent reports of the slave trade currently practiced in Libya, there is apt to be more shocking news around racial justice and human rights. Keep an eye on them, and also Congress. The tension between Mars and Uranus is rewoven as both planets harmonize with Mercury the messenger and Saturn the worker. Our efforts at communication on behalf of personal and collective freedom can make a difference.

Moon and Sun make a close T-square to Neptune, planet of fog and spiritual love, warning of confusion or deception but also empowering our intuition, prayer and connections with light beings. Sun joins Venus, adding personal love to the mix.

The December Full Moon lunation is associated with the mystical Oak. In Everyday Moon Magic, Dorothy Morrison explains that the branches of this formidable tree span outward and upward towards the sky, while its roots are deeply and firmly grounded. In Monthly Influences, check for more secrets of Oak, a tree that brings balance between celestial and earthly energies, strengthening confidence and reconnecting us with our potential.

Moon’s ruler, Mercury, is station-retrograde at the anaretic degree, also accenting intuition.

Affirmation:
The Sacred Mother made me to be confident, and I express my power with well-wrought words now.

Monday, December 4

Moon in Gemini makes an early sextile to restless Uranus and a trine to Mars, so we’ll feel like moving in original, audacious and, thanks to today’s number 4, constructive ways. We can act on our instincts and knock on an exciting door before 9:46 am (12:46 pm ET), when Moon opposes strict Saturn as well as restless Mercury before going VOC.

We can get back in the flow at 12:37 pm (3:37 ET), when Moon enters Cancer. Still in the glow of yesterday’s Full Moon portal, and with Monday being the day of her rule, afternoon is great for inviting the devas of love and compassion to enter and bless our personal and planetary homes, as well as to declutter, meditate on compassion or forgiveness or, in view of Moon’s nighttime contact to Venus, perform a handfasting ceremony.

Affirmation:
I am allied with the forces of love that harmonize my home and open my way, here and now.

Tuesday, December 5

The dynamic energy of today’s number 5 makes an interesting mix with Moon’s trines to Jupiter and Neptune, planets of angels, vision, prophecy and release. With Moon in Cancer, sign of family, business and intuition, this combination is great for consulting spirit guides, setting goals and making a dream board for prosperity, family wellness and harmony. It can also help us release attachment to a past or present dwelling place or family dynamic.

This afternoon, Moon opposes intense Pluto: journal, declutter the desk or business papers, sit by the fireplace and mend clothes, or soak in the tub with sea or Himalayan salt. Interactions can be unnecessarily complicated.

Affirmation:
I release and am released by dwelling places of the past and present. I am free to manifest my true place with the true prosperity, and I am guided to it now.

Wednesday, December 6

With Mercury joining stalwart Saturn and harmonizing with dynamic Mars, morning is good for serious thinking and directed communication.

Moon in Cancer combines nicely with the prosperous vibration of today’s number 6 to favor business activities and plans for holiday encounters. to avoid the feisty excesses of Moon’s tense contacts to Mercury, Mars and Saturn, stay alert and keep your head clear.

At 12:37 pm (3:37 ET), Moon enters sociable, expressive Leo, warming the way for some high moments this afternoon, when Mars in flirty Libra makes a sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius, sign of diplomacy and motivation. Close a sale or somehow connect with your market, contacts, dear ones or colleagues—with an eye on tangible results.

Affirmation:
The Universe wants to see me prosper and I act in this confidence now.

Thursday, December 7

Make a special effort to remember and analyze last night’s dreams.

Moon in confident, creative Leo squares Jupiter in intense Scorpio, making this morning great for creativity and journaling but not so hot for reaching agreements, unless they happen to be hormonal.

Communications are easier after 3:15 pm (6:15 ET), when Moon makes a trine to Sun in expansive Sagittarius. Now is the perfect time to reach out to others.

With Mercury retrograde, focus on connections and initiatives seeded before November 15, when the messenger planet entered pre-retrograde shadow.

Affirmation:
As an expression of the Divine, I am naturally connected to the right ideas and people, who appear spontaneously here and now.

Friday, December 8

We close the week with style. Moon in confident, expressive Leo makes three trines: to liberating Uranus, communicative Mercury, and constructive Saturn. The success vibration of today’s number 8 will radiate through our direct, original actions, creative initiatives, and warm connections.

We’ll get a break at 2:40 pm (5:40 ET), when she goes VOC.

Moon gets back on track when she enters Virgo at 3:09 pm (6:09 ET), where she favors organization, productivity and healing of self and others.

Affirmation:
My good cannot be in another place or time. My good is always where I am. I believe it and move to receive it now.

Saturday, December 9

In the wee hours, Mars enters Scorpio, complimenting the transmuting influences of today’s number 9 and waning Moon in Virgo, to favor streamlining, organizing, and decluttering.

This is a great day to schedule a minor surgical intervention to remove tissue. With lunar contacts to loving Venus and compassionate Neptune, we can also meditate on love and forgiveness and donate time or resources to an altruistic cause.

However, morning tensions do not favor interpersonal connections or business.

At 1:50 pm (4:50 ET), we can begin to enjoy the smoothing effects of a sextile from Moon to Jupiter, planet of meaning, motivation and good fortune. Interchanges flow well, and practical efforts trigger prosperous results. With Jupiter in intense Scorpio, however, situations requiring truth and depth work better than superficial PR.

A late trine from thinker-planet Mercury to electrical Uranus is anything but restful. This genius aspect is worth staying or getting up for and is perfect for study, preparing a text, presentation or argument, writing letters to Congress, or undertaking another important mental task.

At 11:51 pm (2:51 am ET), Moon reaches its Fourth Quarter, propitiating reorganization, release and simplification. At 18-19 Virgo, the Sabian symbol is:

A SWIMMING RACE NEARS COMPLETION BEFORE A LARGE CROWD. Social sustainment of individual accomplishment. Encouragement. Competition as a means to create group consciousness.

Affirmation:
I consecrate my hands to divine circulation, and great good flows through me and to me now.

Sunday, December 10

This morning we can sleep in, interpret dreams, meditate, journal, or participate in counseling, therapy or coaching.

With Moon in picky Virgo forming exclusively tense aspects, and sweet Venus squaring surrealistic Neptune, the rest of the day is not particularly gentle. We can use this energy to edit writing, clean the closet or garage, weed the yard, pick up trash in the local park, or somehow engage in a service project. As for festivities or romantic aspirations, put them on hold for another day.

Affirmation:
As I clear my space, light fill it with new good now.

Monday, December 11

This is the last day “11” before Winter Solstice, a window to lift the planetary vibration with our heart rays.

Moon in Libra likes this idea, and her good taste helps us declutter and beautify our space in preparation for Solstice.

We can also release a grudge, an item of clothing, or a way of presenting ourselves that isn’t what we really wish to project.

Affirmation:
I open my heart and radiate the compassion, understanding and love that the Mother-Father has shared so generously with me. I bless all and release all and now.
